Matt Balzer is the 2013 Xterra National Champion, having placed first overall amateur at the Xterra US Championships in Utah last September. He followed that up with a third place age group (first American) finish at Xterra Worlds in Maui in October. He was just named USA Triathlon Off-Road Triathlete of the year for 2013. He is a former Pro Triathlete who competed in the Continental Cup Series for five seasons.
He and his wife Aimee, the 2013 National Age-group trail running champion, live in Reno, Nevada with their two daughters. They own the very successful Reno Running Company as well as another small business serving the industrial mail handling equipment industry. They manage to balance a hectic work schedule, an on-the-go family life, and a rigorous training program that tires you out just thinking about it.
